Auditions for Agnes of God

We will be holding auditions for Agnes of God by John Pielmeier on August 2 & 3, 2014, at the Squffy Theater at Central School Project, 43 Howell Avenue in Old Bisbee. Auditions are from 2:00 to 5:00 pm both days, or you may schedule an audition appointment.

This challenging play revolves around a novice nun, Sister Agnes, who has given birth. The infant’s corpse was found in a wastebasket. Dr. Livingstone, a psychiatrist, must decide Agnes’s sanity. The Mother Superior tries to shield young Agnes from the doctor. Who fathered, and who killed the baby? All three women must look more deeply at how each defines faith and love. A copy of the script is available for actors to read at the Copper Queen Library.

BOP is seeking three strong women for the roles. Agnes is a young adult or someone who can play young on stage. Some singing experience (soprano) is necessary for this role. Dr. Livingstone is middle-aged to older, must be willing to smoke fake cigarettes or nicotine alternatives. Mother Miriam is older. Actors are asked to come prepared for auditions with a one- to two-minute memorized monologue. They will also do cold readings from the script.

Rehearsals for Agnes of God will be on Saturdays and Sunday afternoons and Monday and Wednesday evenings through October 2. Performances will be October 3 – 12, evenings and matinees. Contact Elizabeth Henley at 520.234.8891 or at for more information and audition appointments.
